by Jimmy Muir
Want to be the life of the party? The person everyone counts on to deliver a good laugh? Or make light of a situation at just the perfect time?
Jimmy Muir has this knack. And he reveals all in this worthy successor to his "Laugh Lines" manuscripts with this booklet, packed to the gills with great material, including gags, one-liners, and good-natured heckler-stoppers which you can put to immediate use.
If you didn't know better, you'd think that Jimmy was Johnny Carson's brother, for they both had a knack for perfect timing and were masters of having fun ... more often at their own expense ... which had audiences rolling in the aisles.
Recommended reading for magicians, mentalists, comedians, emcees, ventriloquists, and anyone else who needs to break the ice, liven up a presentation, or maintain control if someone in the audience starts to annoy the others.
Long out of print, we decided to update the book by removing the occasional tired, dated bits and replacing them, on a one-for-one basis, with new, fresh material to liven up your club, close-up or stage act.
Jimmy Muir gained a fabled reputation for snappy, entertaining quips, gags and topical one-liners with his magic act, or more often, as an emcee (master of ceremonies) for magic performances at conventions, hotel and theatre shows.
Audiences love it when the performer, seemingly off-the-cuff, has an instant reply to any situation. It's as simple as selecting a handful of your favorites from Jimmy's material and delivering them at the appropriate time. Now you can do it, too!
